(My Mom would say it was my little sister who bloomed today :) )
Fall is definitely coming up fast! The sun is gentler somehow and I see with sadness that most all of the annuals are gone, with just a few hanging on in a blaze of color.
Happy, though that we planned our garden so that when the summer was over the Fall color begins! The chrysanthemums are budding and soon will be a riot of color. We have been steadily planting them all Spring and Summer to add to our already beautiful group.
SARAH PALIN: The chicken crossed the road because, gosh darn it, he's a maverick!
GEORGE W. BUSH: The chicken crossed the road because the bank where he kept all the money he made on oil was on the other side.
TEA PARTY MEMBER: The chicken did not cross the road because he saw what was on the other side.
BARACK OBAMA: The chicken, like all hard working Americans, crossed the road because he was filled with Hope and Change for a better life and when you spread the Hope and Change around it's good for all the chickens.
HOSNI MUBARAK: I tried to prevent the chicken from crossing the road but when I lost American support he did what he damned well pleased.
JOE BIDEN: Because we spent $11 billion building high speed rail to cross the roads.
ANDERSON COOPER: We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed to have access to the other side of the road.
NANCY GRACE: That chicken crossed the road because he's GUILTY! You can see it in his eyes and the way he walks.
ROD BLAGOJEVICH: I am innocent of the charges that I took $20.00 to tell that chicken to cross the road!
NANCY PELOSI: Chickens will do whatever I tell them to, that's why.
DR. PHIL: The problem we have here is that this chicken won't realize that he must first deal with the problem on 'THIS' side of the road before it goes after the problem on the 'OTHER SIDE' of the road. What we need to do is help him realize how stupid he's acting by not taking on his 'CURRENT' problems before adding 'NEW' problems.
OPRAH WINFREY: Well, I understand that the chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross this road so bad. So instead of having the chicken learn from his mistakes and take falls, which is a part of life, I'm going to give this chicken a car so that he can just drive across the road and not live his life like the rest of the chickens.
JOHN McCAIN: My friends, that chicken crossed the road because he recognized the need to engage in cooperation and dialogue with all the chickens on the other side of the road.
CHRIS MATTHEWS: He was trying to get away from some intolerant Republicans and form a cluckus with other chickens of similar minds.
HILLARY CLINTON: When I was First Lady, I personally helped that little chicken to cross the road. This experience makes me uniquely qualified to ensure right from Day One that every chicken in this country gets the chance it deserves to cross the road. But then, this really isn't about me.
GEORGE W. BUSH: We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road, or not. The chicken is either against us, or for us. There is no middle ground here.
DICK CHENEY: Under threat from al Qaeda, the chicken had to get to his secret, undisclosed location.
HUGO CHAVEZ: The chicken crossed the road to stomp out oppressive American capitalist imperialism!
TED KENNEDY: The chicken crossed that road because I wasn't driving the car.
BILL O'REILLY: Because he's a pinhead!
RONALD REAGAN: I went to Berlin and demanded that Mr. Gorbachev tear down that wall and the people did so the chicken could cross the road.
BILL CLINTON: I did not cross the road with that chicken.
AL GORE: I invented the chicken.
